INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN COMMENTS ON THE GAZA SLAUGHTER AND ISRAEL’S DECLARATION OF WAR ON BARACK OBAMA

PART ONE OF AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY EXPERT ANDY MARTIN’S FOUR-PART SERIES ON THE NEW MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT

MARTIN SAYS THAT, AS ALWAYS, PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH HAS ADOPTED A FAILED, COUNTERPRODUCTIVE APPROACH TO THE ISRAELI ATTACKS

(SAN FRANCISCO)(December 28, 2008) Internet powerhouse Andy Martin will hold a San Francisco news conference today, Sunday, December 28th to provide his analysis of the new Israeli attacks on Gaza. Martin says that although Gazans are being slaughtered, Barack Obama is the real target of the Israeli assault. “Israel has come out into the open and declared war on Obama,” Martin says.

Martin has extensive experience in the Middle East, having been in Israel, Jordan, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. He served as a Baghdad Bureau Chief and was a strong opponent of the 2003 invasion.

“The week between Christmas and New Year’s is traditionally a quiet one, which is why I made good on promises to launch our National Conversation on Obama on the West Coast this week,” Martin says. “Frankly, I am surprised that Israel has chosen now to declare war on Barack Obama. I am scrambling to get back to New York on December 31st.

“This is the week that the real world intruded on Barack Obama’s ‘fantasy island’ vacation in Hawai’i. Obama has been living in a dream world. Rather appropriately, as Israel was attacking Gaza, the lights also went out across Oahu. Coincidence?

“This is the week reality also intruded in the Middle East. Arab nations and Muslim nations have been expecting a ‘new deal’ from Obama (see Part Two, San Diego, below). The ‘new deal’ is dead. Attitudes are going to harden overnight. Israel’s Ehud Barack says he wants a ‘fight.’ He may get it. Just not where he wants it.

“Obama will be seen as impotent in the face of Israeli bombs and aggression. Obama’s White House is supposed to be run by a pro-Israel champion, Rahm Emanuel.

“The claim that Israel was ‘responding’ to Hamas is disingenuous and inaccurate,” Martin says. “Both sides have been provoking each other. Israel has blockaded the people of Gaza for years and tried to starve them into submission. Israel never ‘withdrew;’ Gaza has continued to be under siege on land, in the air and at sea.

“Both sides are pursuing failed policies. Israel has tried to destroy Gaza and Hamas, and has failed miserably. Hamas is stronger today, perhaps because Hamas was originally a creation of Israeli domestic intelligence (Shin Bet). Likewise, Hamas’ rockets have not achieved any great results. But the new killing will only undermine Israel and strengthen Hamas. I would not be surprised to see Hizballah chime in with attacks on Israel’s northern border.

“The claim by President Bush that Hamas ‘broke the ceasefire’ is also inaccurate and unbalanced. Israel has been conducting attacks and repeatedly violated the cease fire. Both sides were negotiating in Egypt to renew the ceasefire. As a result, Egypt is now humiliated.

“By failing to condemn the indiscriminate murder of civilians, President Bush has ensured that he will leave office in disgrace as a helpless, pitiful pygmy in Middle East politics. Eight years, wasted.

“U. S. policy and Israeli policy is exactly backwards. Instead of trying to isolate Hamas, our policy should be to engage them, to open all barriers, so that the people of Gaza are free to travel and conduct commerce. I don’t know which Israeli politician expects to gain politically from the latest mayhem, but in the long run the Israeli people are being led to disaster by increasingly radical governments that are out of touch with reality.

“Five years ago in opposing the attack on Iraq I predicted that Israel would be the big loser. Five years later, I have been proven correct. Iran has been strengthened, not weakened, by the American removal of Saddam Hussein. Israel’s regional position is deteriorating, not strengthening. Many opportunities for peace have tragically been ignored. Remember when Israel and the U. S. said peace would come after Arafat died? How many years has Arafat been gone? The West Bank? Another coming disaster, on Obama’s watch. The ‘Israel lobby’ may be able to intimidate Congress, but it is impotent to influence the Middle East. Condo ‘This Condo Should be Condemned’ Rice has proven useless and incompetent.

“This week Gazan blood has been shed. It is only a matter of time before Israel also pays the price in blood. These are rational polices for the United States to pursue or support? In our four-part series we will analyze and evaluate the next four or eight years of conflict and confrontation in the Middle East. Those who hoped for peace and progress are likely to be bitterly disappointed. Israel’s attacks on Gaza potentially endanger not only every Israeli but every American as well. American taxpayers are subsidizing the purchase of Israeli’s instruments of death and destruction. We are equally culpable. And we wonder why they hate us.

“Is Rahm Emanuel going to be the one to impose reason on Israel? No way. Indeed, Emmanuel may find himself the first casualty of the Israeli attacks. Emanuel’s position as chief of staff has now become untenable (see Part Four, New York).

“Mr. Obama, welcome to the real world, where big boys play with live bombs and real people die, where politicians make real decisions, usually bad ones. The make-believe world of presidential campaigning ended December 27th,” Martin states. “Hurry home.

“Israel has declared war on Barack Obama. He is the real target of Saturday’s attacks. How will Obama respond? I am not optimistic.”

You are losing focus Andy. Stick to Obama's ineligibility and Chicago corruption. There is more than enough there to make you famous. Finish these two areas then move on to something else. You are starting to get boring.
